        Parent of Ex-Year 6 Pupil

        Our children grow up so fast and develop year on year - a lot changes between the ages of 7 and 11!  It is very difficult to determine what the most suitable senior school for a 7 or 8 or 9 year old will be.  I know from my own experience that it was only in Year 4, aged 9, that we established our first choice senior school which happened to be in the Borough of Trafford.  Our second choice senior school was a Cheshire school which has a different exam structure and schedule. The Ryleys supported us in our consideration of all appropriate schools and preparing for our selected options. 

        In addition to the academic side, the personal development of my child was most significant in Year 6.  I would not take away from him the experiences he had as part of The Ryleys in Year 6.  The fun-filled activities, the school trips and the responsibility that he was encouraged to take on as part of the oldest class in the school have been invaluable in his transition to senior school. It has provided him with a springboard into a very smooth transition as he has a well-developed sense of personal responsibility and confidence. 

        Mr Andrew Davis - Head of Music, St. Bede's College

        My name is Andrew Davies and I am the Head of Music at St. Bede’s College.  I am delighted to inform you that Georgina, who is an ex-pupil of the Ryleys School, has been accepted as a member of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain - singing Alto.

        Georgie is continuing to thrive here, and has been a much valued pupil. She is now studying A Level Music, is Grade 7 Piano, Grade 8 Singing and Grade 6 Clarinet. She is also now learning to conduct!

        This email is our way of saying thank you for sending us such a fantastic student and to assure you that we will continue to support her in the journey that she started with you and your wonderful school. I know that Dr. Robson, our Headmaster, concurs.

        New Reception Parent

        We had our initial visit yesterday and we were blown away in comparison to competitors within the area.

         The head humbled us and personally sat with us for over an hour, finding out about our life, son and needs (she also offered cake and coffee- instantly sold). The knowledge the head and staff delivered was fantastic (backed up by evidence) and the children and resources were an absolute credit.

         I'm sure you can gather we completed the registration forms! We cannot wait to become part of the Ryleys family! Roll on 2018!
